This paper presents a 60 GHz analog/digital beamforming receiver that effectively suppresses interference signals, targeting the IEEE 802.11ad/WiGig standard. Combining two-stream analog frontends with interference rejection digital signal processing, the analog beamforming steers the antenna beam to the desired direction while the digital beamforming provides gain suppression in the interference direction. A prototype has been built with 40 nm CMOS analog frontends as well as offline baseband digital signal processing. Measurements show a 3.1 dB EVM advantage over conventional two-stream diversity during a packet collision situation.
